Gosh Darn Competing Goals

According to TIME magazine, Bill Clinton is a consultant for each and every Democratic presidential candidate's campaign:

Whatever their differences, Clinton is talking to all the candidates because, his friends say, they share one goal: ensuring another one-term Bush presidency.

Yes, indeed. No doubt they all don't like Mr. Bush. But as each and every one of those Democratic contenders listens to Mr. Clinton's sagacities, they may want to remember that he has an additional goal - making his wife president in 2008.

And Mr. Clinton doesn't have a good record of subordinating his - shall we say - more personal goals and needs to those of the Democratic Party generally.
